During the annual United Way workplace campaign, Vogel Bros. Building Co. and its employees raised $25,000 through pledges, special events and corporate donations.

The United Way campaign is more than just raising money for worthy causes; it also serves as an opportunity to strengthen connections between employees. For the past few years, Vogel Bros. has hosted a company picnic with games and auctions to supplement pledges and corporate donations to United Way.

The theme of this year’s picnic and campaign was the Olympics. There were games, live and silent auctions, and a 50/50 raffle. Employees and their families where encouraged to participate and enjoyed a pig roast while watching “the games.” In true Olympic tradition, Gold, Silver and Bronze medals were awarded, and winners proudly stood upon a podium to accept their medal.

A sincere “thank you” to those who contributed through donating auction items, bidding on auction items, purchasing 50/50 raffle tickets, participating in the games, and direct pledges. And special thanks to those who helped plan, organize and facilitate the picnic. It was a great success!
